Scripture: Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

If you have lived with chickens but thought like an eagle, it is only a matter of time before someone will see the eagle in you and allow you to spread your wings and fly higher. But keep in mind, if you want to go for it as an eagle, you must let go of the chicken’s perspective. Celebrate your independence! Don’t allow life’s situations to deter your dreams and overpower your passions.

Isaiah 40:31 - but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

You may start on the ground, but for God’s sake end up in the air! From the eagle’s view, new opportunities are always within sight. The eagle sees what lies befor him while the chicken’s view is only what lies beneath him! Trust in the Lord with all your heart.

It’s time to spread your wings and lift your vision. Whatever is hindering you from receiving the word of God, let it go! You will need a full set of long wings to rise above the temporal and sail into the transcendent. Consider what you could attain if you cast off the weight of yesterday and embrace the galling winds of a changed mind and an open heart.

Prayer: Father God, give us the strength to let it go. By faith, nothing is impossible for those who believe. Let us serve one another with a pure heart. Create in us a clean, renewed spirit. Let the fruits of our spirit be magnified by Your word. We surrender all of our cares to You, the author and finisher of our faith. Amen.
